Summary: A strong cold front will gradually push through the Eastern U.S. over the next couple of days and will bring heavy rain and severe weather, primarily damaging winds . Excessive rainfall may result in flash flooding in the central Great Lakes and central Appalachians. Flash flood watches are currently in effect from the coastal Carolinas to the Great Lakes. Additionally, several disturbances are currently active in the tropical Atlantic, however none of them are expected to impact the continental US at this time. Due to a backlog of freight, delays are still being seen for shipments destined to areas impacted by Ida and Nicholas
Peter is currently passing north of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico and will turn northwest, then north into the central Atlantic, but is no threat to the continental United States.
Rose is located in the far eastern Atlantic Ocean to the northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. It's of no threat to land and may degenerate to a remnant low late this week.
Currently located a few hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, this system will be named "Sam" if it develops enough to meet storm criteria. While it's too soon to determine if "future Sam" will ever become a U.S. threat, there is increasing confidence that the environment is conducive for intensification this weekend into early next week, including low wind shear and increasingly warm water. In this environment, it could become a hurricane as soon as early next week.
